Flexibility

Greetings again, I hope you all had a good summer. Mine was full of work and play, coupled with casual sunsets on the beach with friends. As you know, I took some things off my plate, like posting entries to my Creativity and Wellness Blog. Crafting so(u)l space helped me come back energized.

On my early morning walk today, I remembered a favorite potter of mine, Diane Heart. I’ve been buying her pottery for many years. She has a wonderful studio on Cape Cod. Even though I didn’t make it to the Cape this summer, I think of her fondly, every time I use one of her finely-crafted and artistic bowl, mug, or vase. Many years ago when I was still in my corporate, highly structured professional life, I visited Diane’s studio. Inhaling the scent of beach rose, sea grass and salt water, I read her tiny, ceramic front door sign: Open 10ish – 5ish. Before I set one sandy foot in her shop, I was delighted, mesmerized and envious! Her simple sign showed me that it was possible to have flexibility and still be a professional.

Twenty-five years later, her vision continues to inspire me. After sitting at my desk this morning, and opening the computer, the first thing I did was Google “Diane Heart Pottery.” Sure enough, there she was, and sure enough . . . her hours are the same.

Creativity and wellness message for today: Try flexibility on for size, it might be just the inspiration you need.

P.S. I’ll be writing and posting this blog: Once-a-week-ish.
